Professor Richard Hornik, Director of Overseas Partnership Programs for the Center for News Literacy at Stony Brook University, joined the Radicalization & Religion IR MA elective as a guest lecturer in the spring 2017 term. As part of the NYU Common Place Peer to Peer (P2P) campaign in the course, Professor Hornik was also interviewed by NYU graduate candidate in Religious Studies, Alexandra (Kirby) Sokolow, about the creation of the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC), Making Sense of the News. The short YouTube video, explains the nature of "fake news" as well as the responsibilities of educators and citizens in news literacy. Over the past decade, grants totaling over $2 million dollars from the Knight and Ford Foundations led to the development of news literacy initiatives. The Making Sense of the News MOOC content has been integrated into Professor Colette Mazzucelli's Radicalization & Religion spring term elective with care to respect learning and pedagogy in the course. The design of a Qualtrics survey aims to assess the impact of the YouTube video over time on audiences who are introduced to the news literacy technology-mediated curriculum as a counter narrative to hate speech and online radicalization. A journalist and news executive with over 30 years of global experience, Professor Hornik is also an editorial consultant. He has designed and implemented editorial reorganizations at Reuters and the Harvard Business Review. In 2001, Mr. Hornik retired from his position as executive editor of AsiaWeek, capping 24 years with the publications of Time Inc.
